"Anthony has guitar skills reminiscent of young guitarists Joe Bonamassa and Jonny Lang." (Boogie Magazine)

"Hearing and seeing Anthony perform alongside veteran musicians made it easy to forget that he is so young. If you haven't heard him play yet, find him!"
- Annette Higby, Echo and Buzz

" ... he further dazzled my senses with the playing maturity of someone way beyond his years, demonstrating a total command of the fretboard with fierce string bends, wicked vibrato, and a lick vocabulary akin to a guitarist that's been at it for decades."
- Wayne Riker, San Diego Troubadour

"A special young man. I'd seen him working a few times as a sideman with other artists, but recently I saw a video of him doing his own thing and I was blown away! (Earl Thomas Bridgeman)
